  • Lawyer Amjad Pervaiz will continue cross-examination of Panama JIT head Wajid Zia

A three-member bench headed by Justice Muzahir Akbar Naqvi conducted hearing of the case.

Subsequently, the court directed PEMRA to strictly monitor the speeches. "It is part of the code of conduct that a (judicial) matter can not be discussed until the court takes the final decision; however, news channels have been crossing the limit by broadcasting talk shows on such cases", said Chudhry Khadim Huddain, editor of a national daily. He added that it made sense for a lawyer or an expert to dwell on judicial verdicts but not every other person. He pointed out that Article 68 even prevented Parliament from criticising the judiciary and its decisions.

Accountability court judge Mohammad Bashir resumed hearing of the corruption reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the light of the Panamagate verdict.

When the court asked the regulatory body why it had dismissed the petitions, Pemra's counsel Salman Akram Raja said the allegations against the government agency were baseless.

During the proceedings, the regulatory authority was slammed for dismissing the petitions highlighting anti-judiciary remarks.

"This is not a minor mistake", the bench observed.

During the hearing Pemra was slammed for not taking action on the complaints about airing of anti-judiciary content on the television channels.

The court also rejected an application filed by Advocate A K Dogar on behalf of Sharif requesting that Justice Naqvi recuse himself from the full bench.

Counsel for one of the petitioners, Azhar Siddiqui informed the court that Pemra did not take any action over petitions filed with it regarding alleged anti-judiciary speeches by PML-N leaders.
